    Two compounding pharmacy executives are facing federal charges for allegedly failing to recall “super-potent” painkillers that in one case sickened babies at an Indiana hospital, officials said. Paul J. Elmer, 64, owner of Pharmakon Pharmaceuticals, and Caprice R. Bearden, 62, the company’s director of compliance, were indicted Thursday on 10 charges involving drugs that were labeled as far more or far less potent than their actual strength, the Justice Department said.

  • Prosecutors ask to reinstate Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction

    Bristol County prosecutors officially asked to reinstate Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction on Friday, arguing in court documents that the former NFL player’s suicide should not lead to dismissal of the guilty verdict. The appeal to the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts specifically targets the “abatement” rule, which holds that murder convictions are tossed out if a defendant dies before his appeal has been heard by a court. “This is an archaic rule not based on the Constitution, and it should […]

  • Germany to overturn convictions for homosexuality, pay compensation

    GERMANY – Gay men prosecuted in Germany under a longstanding anti-homosexuality law are expected to have their convictions thrown out and to receive compensation.

The Bundestag, Germany’s lower legislative body, voted Thursday to quash all Paragraph 175 convictions from the post-World War II era, German media outlets reported. Of the 64,000 men convicted since the 1945, an […]

  • Man tattoos LeBron James’ crying face on his leg

    There are those who don’t detest LeBron James. And then there’s Kalen Gilleese. The Salt Lake City man took his disdain for King James to the next level — by tattooing LeBron’s crying face on his leg. Gilleese has always been a big fan of Michael Jordan and the Bulls, and says he decided to get the ink after constantly hearing James being compared to Jordan. “He’s always flopping, crying, looking for fouls. I’ve never had a lot of respect […]

  • Bill Cosby juror speaks: ‘We had no real new evidence’

    The jury in Bill Cosby’s assault trial agreed on many points in the case and accepted his accuser’s testimony as true, but they remained at a hopeless deadlock because of the confusing wording in the texts of the charges, a juror told CNN. Parts of testimony from key witness Andrea Constand against Cosby were “unbelievable,” the juror said, but her contradicting memory of dates in the case didn’t have a big impact on the jury split. “It didn’t matter if […]

  • Yellowstone grizzly bears removed from endangered species list

    Don’t call it a comeback. The Yellowstone grizzly bear population has recovered enough to be delisted from the endangered species list, according to a statement released by the US Fish and Wildlife service. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke called the recovery “one of America’s great conservation successes.” “As a kid who grew up in Montana, I can tell you that this is a long time coming,” he said. “[It’s] very good news for many communities and advocates in the Yellowstone […]
